STOCKTON, Ca. (July 2023) – ETHERO Truck + Energy is adding another trusted trucking and equipment industry professional to its team to head its first dealership location in the state of California.
David Baiocchi has taken over as General Manager for the zero-emissions truck dealership and energy solutions provider’s Stockton, California site. David comes to ETHERO with over four decades of experience in sales management and dealer consulting on planning, delivery practices, aftermarket offerings, parts inventory efficiency, and standard operating procedure development.
“ETHERO is unique in our ability to package true turn-key solutions for our clients,” said Baiocchi. “I’m excited to be leading the team in California and offer this integrated, innovative consulting for the transportation sector on the West Coast, especially during a time when many new incentives and grants are available for customers to convert to zero emissions alternatives,” said Baiocchi.
The dealership will offer sales and service of Nikola Corporation trucks and Lonestar Specialty Vehicles for California customers. Other dealership locations include Mechanicsville, Virginia, and Elkridge, Maryland.
ETHERO is a California Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Program (HVIP), and California Off-Road Equipment Voucher Program (CORE) approved dealer. ETHERO’s sales associates and energy services technicians can also help California-based companies navigate the San Joaquin Valley and Bay Area AQMD HD Truck programs, Innovative Small E-Fleet, and others that fit their unique fleet operation’s needs.
“David came aboard the team this Spring and has already been an asset to the company’s strategy as we establish our presence in California,” said Dave Rogers, Director of ETHERO’s electric truck division. “He has a demonstrated history of crucial development processes and increases in revenue, and his talents and professional consulting guidance are much appreciated as we continue expanding our territory to offer truck sales and energy infrastructure services to more customers.”
ETHERO is the exclusive franchised dealership for Nikola battery-electric (BEV) and hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) in the majority of the South Atlantic region and Northern California and the designated distributor and servicing dealer for Lonestar SV battery electric terminal tractors.
